sad times for a mouse

May 14, 2009

Super cool!
I happened to get home from work at the perfect time today.  I was checking my mail when I saw a heron fly by.  There’s one that likes to hunt in a particular patch of long grass in the apartment complex, so I ran to a spot where I could watch.  He stalked through the grass right towards me.  Wow do they look alien close up!  They bend their necks in such weird ways and their feet are huge!  He walked through the grass ever so slowly, changing his posture and then suddenly *BAMN*!  Got a mouse.  He held it in his mouth squeaking for a moment or two and then *GULP* swallowed it whole.  I wasn’t thirty feet from him.
